Back From the Brink!

HELP BRING US BACK FROM THE BRINK!
Water Damage Received at the Taube Museum of Art! The lower level of the Taube Museum of Art was flooded on three different occasions due to a combination of the downtown construction on Central Avenue and heavy summer rains.  Insurance only covered a portion of the clean-up  costs and did not cover any of the restoration work needed to bring the lower level back from the brink!  Click Here To Find Out How You Can Help

Galatians 5: The Conflict of Spirit and Flesh

Exhibition by MSU Senior Anne Palmer

Anne Palmer, a senior Art Education Major at Minot State University, will be presenting her capstone exhibition in the Main Gallery of the Taube Museum of Art from February 9th through the 26th, 2016 titled “Galatians 5: The Conflict of Spirit and Flesh”. Galatians chapter 5:19-23 reads, “The acts of the sinful nature are: sexual immorality, impurity and debauchery; idolatry and witchcraft; hatred, discord, jealousy, fits of rage, selfish ambition, dissensions, factions and envy; drunkenness, orgies, and the like. I warn you, as I did before, that those who live like this will not inherit the kingdom of God. But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control.”

Palmer will give a brief overview about her works of life size, wearable, dresses made with everyday objects that represent the Fruits of the Holy Spirit and the seven deadly sins. This introduction will conclude with a viewing of a short film portraying Palmer’s choreographed dance interpretation of spiritual warfare co-produced with MSU Broadcasting Major, Aundrey Livingston. Each dress was modeled for this event with photographs captured by Photographer Steffaney Price. Palmer enjoys exploring different mediums in her art by using everyday objects to represent deeper concepts. Being physically engaged in art that will integrate both visual art and physical activity through audience interaction has become a major influence in her work. As a continuing learner Palmer seeks out experiences that help people express art, think critically, and sew their shadow back on.

The artworks may be purchased through a silent auction for the duration of the exhibition. A percentage of proceeds will go to Operation Smile, an organization for cleft-lip, cleft-palate repair surgeries. This correlates to Palmer’s work as her way to support an organization that provides necessary surgeries for people around the world with a similar condition she continues to overcome through her walk of faith that is expressed in her show.

Originally from Minot, Palmer has worked in different fields of retail, lifeguarding, assisted living, and educational professions. She continues to expand her diversity in occupations to learn more about various cultures, trends, and strategies to build a strong foundation for teaching at a secondary level upon graduation in the spring of 2016.

Please join Anne Palmer for her Premiere (artist reception), which is free and open to the public, Thursday, February 11th from 5:30 – 7:00 pm. A projected film premiere will be held at 5:45 pm. Hors d’ouevres and wine will be served. Formal attire is optional. A preview of the film can be found at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3MVaM6yy9Wk.

Museum and Gift Shop hours: Tues – Fri 10:30 – 5:30 pm, Sat 11:00 am – 4:00 pm or by special appointment. There is no charge for admission, but contributions are accepted to help the Taube Museum fulfill their mission of enriching lives through the visual arts. The exhibition is made possible with support from the North Dakota Council on the Arts.

Lower Gallery

Monkeying Around!

Jon Ross presents Darwinisms

The Taube Museum of Art Lower Gallery will feature the work of Minot native Jon Ross January 6th – February 27th, 2016. Ross is an art instructor at Trinity High School, Dickinson, and holds a BSE degree from Minot State University. His exhibition, titled Darwinisms will feature colorful, small sized acrylics of readily recognizable master’s works, but with monkeys filling in for their human counterparts. Ross created the first pieces in this alternative evolution series for the Taube Museum of Art’s 2015 Small Works Exhibition, where his humorous characters were well received. The Taube approached Ross about expanding the series to include enough pieces for a solo exhibition for the lower gallery in 2016.

Darwinism’s features works ranging from Da Vinci’s Last Supper and Monkey Lisa to Botticelli’s Birth of Venus. Ross said he wanted something a little more fun and less provocative than some of the earlier art works he was noted for, and with this series something more marketable and family friendly. Ross is somewhat of an enigma, presenting a calm exterior persona on one hand and then there is the flip side who likes wrestling matches, action figures, the Punisher, and movies of all sorts. Ross has always liked monkeys and with Darwinisms he has found a way to let the subject transcend art history into this alternative evolution.

Jon Ross will be present at his artist reception on Saturday, February 27th, 2016 from 2:30 – 4:00 pm. Ross’s exhibition will be the first to be mounted in the “work in progress” lower gallery; while it is ready for exhibition’s it is not completely renovated after the water damage in June of 2015. Contributions are still being accepted to offset the renovation costs. Thank you to those who have assisted the Taube Museum of Art in our efforts.

Museum and Gift Shop hours: Tues – Fri 10:30 – 5:30 pm, Sat 11:00 am – 4:00 pm or by special appointment. There is no charge for admission, but contributions are accepted to help the Taube Museum fulfill their mission of enriching lives through the visual arts.
